Goodbye faddy diets - Natalie Cassidy talks exclusively to Now about taking control of her body

As self-confessed yo-yo dieter Natalie Cassidy walks into the studio for our ultra-glam photo shoot, it’s clear her latest diet’s been a success.

Slipping into a black cutout bodysuit and 8in heels, she glances nervously at her reflection before joking: 
‘I can’t walk in these shoes – but they’d be great in the bedroom!’

Natalie‘s confidence is brimming over – and we’re hardly surprised.

In just six weeks, 
the former EastEnders star has slimmed from a size 14 to a size 10 on her first diet since giving birth to daughter Eliza in October 2010.

‘I thought I was done with weight loss,’ admits Natalie, who shrunk to just 7st 12lb in 2007 after making her infamous fitness DVD.

‘But after having Eliza I was left with a mummy tummy and 
I decided I needed to tone up.

‘That’s what this regime’s been about – I’m so over faddy diets.

‘This time I’m confident that
I’ll keep the weight off.’

So how’s she done it? We grill the star on her diet and fitness secrets…
